Gretsch Micro Sensitive snare drum strainer
It's here! Gretsch has redesigned the Microsensitive strainer and it is fantastic. See our video of this great product here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eize23RuUTM
The new strainer eliminates all of the issues associated with the old style strainer used in the 50s and 60s. The new version has solid internal mechanisms for smooth, trouble free operation, and the basball bat style arm is now an integral part of the assembly, rather than a part that screws in. On the old strainers this was a very weak point where often there would be breakage. This is now a thing of the past. Also, on the top of the strainer arm a push button has been added. The strainer locks in place when engaged, and you push the button to disengage the arm. The butt plate that goes along with this strainer can either be the current style used on USA custom drums, or the single node adjustable butt plate shown here, that is essentially the same as the design from the 50s era drums. And, extra good news: The strainer holes line up with the originals so these strainers can be used as reproduction parts for your vintage Gretsch round badge snares!!! $98 price is for strainer. Butt plate sold separately.
